Each New Year’s Eve we head to our friends’ home to celebrate. Last year we got a message from them before we arrived, “Bring the camera. There’s going to be a proposal!”
And that right there is how we met this beautiful couple, Alexis & Cody.
“Cody later told me that he’d originally planned to propose a few months later in Manhattan,” Alexis told us. “But then his friend mentioned that photographers (you guys!) would be at her family’s New Year’s Eve party. Cody decided at the last minute that that had to be the night. He got my family together, including my 86-year-old grandmother, and dressed up our English bulldog, Gotham, in a tuxedo. All of a sudden, everyone gathered into their living room for a ‘surprise.’ I turned around, and there he was with my family and his. It was an amazing night!”
Chip and I couldn’t agree more! And since Gotham was a part of their proposal story, of course he had to be there for their engagement session too! Allaire State Park was the perfect backdrop. Alexis has always been interested in historical fashion, and it helped inspire the couple’s wardrobe. “I figured it would be fun to wear some victory rolls and dress up Cody,” she said. They looked fantastic!
Fashion will also be infused throughout their wedding. “We ended up going with a 1920s theme so that our guests can have a little dress up fun,” said Alexis. “We are looking forward to having all of our family and friends in one place to celebrate our love and to starting the rest of our lives together.”
The couple’s advice to others who are engaged? “Make sure you don’t rush into the wedding. Set a date that gives you enough time to relax and enjoy the planning process, rather than becoming overly stressed about deadlines.”
Great advice! Thank you, Alexis & Cody, for choosing us! We can’t wait for your wedding next fall at Moorestown Community House!
